10:00 pm
it's been a long run. we do this all the time. mike resoft was really cool a while ago. android's an important mobile platform. it's definitely not samsung. >> but in asia, have you to remember, apple wasn't allowed in china for a long time. where samsung, that's where it started. >> we have the blackberries, cool and technology, those are my two areas. i'm an expert in both of those. >> in fashion. i think by nature, what's interesting, it's almost ironic that this device and technology overall. which is the great individual empowerment we've all subscribed and kind of -- we have one brand that's dominated this, that -- >> android has a bigger piece of the market. >> i'm talking about overall technology. >> it's going to run its course. we always do this, it's going to run its course, and then one day we're going to have apple products as a retro move. >> no one can compete with apple, it's all integrated.
10:01 pm
>> google -- >> i have a -- does everybody have a problem when you're out to dinner and everybody's going like this? >> no, it's fine. >> i want to thank my all-star panel. i want to thank piers for letting me back in the studio again. anderson cooper starts right now. in him north korea as deliver on its latest threat. magnitude 5 magnetic disturbance was recorded just a few hours ago. north korea as confirmed it was,
10:02 pm
indeed, a nuclear test. south korea has called for an emergency session of the security council has been answered. a council diplomat tells cnn that meeting will be held eight hours from now. we are covering this story extensively and getting reaction from around the region. in beijing, and in washington. let's go straight to our correspondent there, we want to start with matthew. the last time he spoke on cnn, there was no reaction from china to this third nuclear blast in north korea. any word now? >> reporter: still no official confirmation here in china that date knowledge this is a nuclear test. although we understand the north koreans say this indeed was a nuclear test, the kind of confirmation we were waiting for. as far as the chinese media are
10:03 pm
concerned, they have been treating it as an earthquake. the chinese geological survey, the earthquake network center confirmed a quake took place in that part of north korea where they are conducting nuclear tests in the past. also reports on the news agency, the official news agency as well as on chinese television reporting local residents saying they felt it earth tremors for something around a minute or so without any injuries or damage. they are very much reporting this as some kind of the earthquake at this stage for nonofficial confirmation or reaction this was a nuclear test. make no mistake, the chinese authorities will be watching this closely. they have made it very clear over the last few weeks that they are opposed to north korea carrying out will be a third nuclear test. they backed the united nations security council resolutions tightening sanctions on north korea following its missile
10:04 pm
tests. they have allowed a strident criticism in the chinese media which is highly unusual criticizing the plans to go ahead with a third test and warning of consequences. one editorial said it was a great test of china's diplomacy to get north korea not to conduct this test. if it is a test, it seems that china may have failed if this test has gone ahead. >> south korea certainly thinks this was a nuclear test. what will it take to prove that to china? >> reporter: i don't think the chinese are saying they don't think it is a nuclear test. they are not objecting to that. we are waiting for the ferry
10:05 pm
normally slow wheels of the bureaucracy here. to turn. not to carry out this task, that was drawn back at them in p'yongyang. it will be very interesting to see what the chinese response is to that, whether they're going to adopt a harder line against p'yongyang. not just diplomatic supporters, they also provide material support like food and fuel and private investments inside north korea. the north koreans are very highly dependent on support of the chinese to keep their regime afloat. if that were to be withdrawn if it had very serious consequences. >> and the international community very eager to hear what china has to say in reaction to this.
10:06 pm
reporting from beijing let's go to washington and get some reaction there. is after 1:00 in the morning now. what is being said in the united states on this? >> there is no official reaction from the u.s. government. of course, the u.s. was expecting this ted stevens morning. was speaking to an official that said the test could come any time. obviously they have been bracing for it. right now a lot of frantic telephone calls going on. not only within the u.s. government but also in south korea. the new secretary of state, john kerry, spoke to the south korean foreign minister just moments ago about the latest nuclear test and now everybody is trying to get their diplomatic ducks in a row. everybody getting on the same page. there will be a security council meeting tomorrow morning, 11:00 eastern time. to discuss the next response and that is what the question is. what will the traffic there?
10:07 pm
will the chinese sign on to the tough resolution that the united states is looking for? will they set on to tough sanctions. it is unclear at this point what china will agree to and that is the best the u.s. can hope for in terms of getting anything out of the u.n. security council. then i also understand the united states is also discussing what kind of unilateral further sanctions it could put on north korea. may be something along the lines of the sanctions regime they have on iran or you squeeze north korea out of the international financial system. making it so difficult for north korea to do any type of business anywhere that maybe it can force a change in behavior clearly there is a lot of discussion and the government and the u.s. right now and the current strategy is not working because it is not stopping north korea from these antics. >> and while i have been there, we are hearing word from north
10:08 pm
korea itself saying that it successfully conducted this third underground test any number underground nuclear test site. and also saying here and that it was smaller in size. like a bomb was used in a high level test, which was safely and perfectly conducted, according to north korea. we will continue to look at that. and see what exactly that means. thank you very much from washington and in beijing. i want to get some insight from a former cnn correspondent and north korean expert. a senior fellow at the u.s. china institute at usc and the author of a book on north korea, meltdown. he joins us now. you have been falling all of these changes as they keep getting updated and we went from one point where we were reporting an artificial earthquake. we're now hearing confirmation from south korea this was a nuclear blast. china is not coming on board as
10:09 pm
yet and japan seems fairly quiet on this. just give us your reading on what is happening across the region as people are starting this information, which we must say was not a surprise. >> this was not at all a surprise. the north koreans have been making clear for several weeks now that they were planning to stage a nuclear test ban and it really was the only real question of when. the timing is interesting because this comes just before president obama is going to deliver his "state of the union" message. and the north koreans, as they have done many times in the past, have managed to insert themselves into the middle of everybody else's agenda. there is no way that president obama will be able to deliver that message without having to say something substantive about north korea. it comes just four days before the birthday of the late north korean leader, kim jong il.
10:10 pm
and i am sure the propaganda machine will be an overdrive trumping this as a great success cementing the legacy and further illustrating how much his son and heir is doing a great job. and in the region, i think it is going to send all kinds of ways of anxiety. south korea, it raises questions for the incoming president who has talked about wanting to reach out to north korea appeared very unclear whether she will be able to do that now. instead likely to be forced into a much more confrontational position care japan, governed by a conservative right-wing prime minister, is searching for ways to get tougher on north korea. and the big question as to have been discussing with others is what are the chinese going to do. this puts them in a very tough spot. beijing has signaled visibly it
10:11 pm
did not want the north koreans to stage these tests. the north koreans have now is essentially spent in their face by doing so. what will the chinese do in response. nobody is sure, there are sharply differing views within china. they will have to come out with some kind of response and we will be watching particularly at the u.n. to see how tough the resolution and the sanctions they are prepared to endorse. >> it is critical because china was north korea's main and almost only ally and by going ahead and doing this, north korea has completely isolated itself. how we do expect china to respond? what are the options? presumably will be an angry and embarrassed in front of the whole world. >> the chinese are angry and this doesn't dare stand here and here you have small north korea, almost a tributary state in some respects. very much dependent on china, by adding that hand that feeds it.
10:12 pm
and the chinese are in a very tough spot. because on the one hand, if they don't call long with sanctions, if they just give rhetorical it serviced to criticize in north korea but don't implement anything, and it is going to further emboldened north korea and it will infuriate the united states and south korea and japan. these are countries in china has more than a few difficulties with. on the other hand, if they do support sanctions, then if the sanctions bite, then either it could destabilize north korea which china doesn't want or it could lead to north korea reacting with even more provocative steps. so there is no easy way out for the chinese. if the u.s. is looking at its own set of unilateral sanctions,
10:13 pm
those will inevitably target chinese companies. they're more economically engaged than they have been in the past. >> it will be interesting to see the outcome. thank you for your perspective what do you make of the fact nobody has heard from this guy in days now? >> well, it could mean either one of two things. he may have gone up into that snowy mountain, and that's where san bernardino is in charge of the search. and that search has continued through bad weather and approved weather. did he go up there and freeze to death and die? did he find his way to shelter and hide out? we won't know that until that search is completed, and they seem to be going forward with it. the flip side of that is, that he found a way out. either a compatriot or a vehicle. and he has gotten down the hill and probably did so immediately if that's is the case, and is back out stalking, as the chief
10:14 pm
indicated he's worried. >> it's not clear how much he was able to preposition things at all. we know he was able to plan enough that he sent out this manifesto and sent out things to news groups and also was able to stalk the relative or allegedly stalk the relative of the police officers he was involved with and kill her, according to authorities. but we don't know whether he was able to preposition any vehicle or anything like that. >> no, i mean, as you pointed out, we saw a lot of pre-operational planning. we don't have much of a window into his long-range planning except some indicators of what was found in the truck, night vision goggles, cold weather gear, a cot, heaters. so, i mean, there are some indications that when he was going up to big bear in his truck, before that axle broke, that he had some kind of plan. he's military trained, he's a military officer, and he's lapd trained. i know from that training, you go into these things saying i
10:15 pm
have a plan, i have a plan "b," and i also have contingency plans for both assuming both will go wrong. that's what we don't have a window into, what was his contingency plan. >> are you surprised that the chief has now talked about reopening the original investigation into the original incidents that he's written about and that ultimately got him kicked off the force? >> i'm not on a number of levels. number one, let's take what charlie beck, the chief said, at face value, which is the department is very much about transparency, which has been a sea change for the lapd. when you read the manifesto by chris dorner, he said when i get justice, the killing will stop. what this is is the police department is saying, all right, if this is about honor, if this is about your word as a man, then let us test that. let's say we'll reopen this investigation and look at your allegations. does the killing stop? and are you going to come in and talk about this if in fact this is your main issue?
10:16 pm
>> it does seem like in the original incident, which is what sparks finally him getting kicked off, he claims a person -- an alleged suspect was kicked by his partner or the person he was with that day. >> yes. his claim is the suspect who was already handcuffed, that dorner handcuffed, was kicked twice by his training officer, three times, twice in the chest and once in the face, leaving a visible injury. >> and what was determined was this person was schizophrenic, not a reliable witness. the father who heard from his son was deemed as heresy because he wasn't actually there, he didn't see it. what new can be learned? >> i think we have learned from cold cases involving everything from murder to an abuse case or a use of force case, that when you reopen them and take a second look, you never know what you're going to find. in this case, they interviewed
10:17 pm
the hotel clerk who looked out on it, the other hotel employee who was outside and watched it while having a smoke. they interviewed the harbor port police sergeant who arrived on backup, and they weren't able to find anybody among those who witnessed the accident who were able to witness what he claimed. he would argue, how can you accuse me of false statements. >> and it could just end up boeing a he said/she said with no resolution. are you surprised he's getting sympathy? dorner, despite the allegations against him, there is -- i mean, i hear it on twitter. i hear from people a lot, and there's folks in california calling into radio stations saying i get the anger behind what he's doing. not necessarily the method he's using. >> i think today especially when you're talking about twitter, talk radio, and the net inter, anybody will pick from any argument, the sliver they're interested, and promote their
10:18 pm
opinion. when you look at that against the backdrop of three murders and whether that makes it justified, you're in a whole other conversation. >> john, appreciate it. thank you very much. let us know what you think. you can follow me on twitter right now @andersoncooper. plenty to tweet about, including pope benedict's stunning decision to step down. two longtime vatican watchers join us with details. and later, as terrifying a view as you ever want to see. take a look at this video. we'll take you where a string of tornado hit, show you the damage they did. incredible pictures there. we'll be right back.

a lot's happened since the year 1415, but one thing has not, not once.
10:22 pm
in nearly six centuries, 59 leaders of the roman catholic church have reigned and not one has resigned. since the year 1450, not one single pope has left the vatican without also leaving this world. that is until today. according to the "new york times," this morning at the vatican, speaking in latin to a small gathering of cardinals, pope benedict xvi said he's too old and frail to continue leading the church. the spokesman saying the pontiff will step down effective the end of this month. when something happens that hasn't happened since henry the viii was around calling a surprise doesn't quite cut it. >> i was very startled, and i don't know what to say. i myself am waiting for information, for instructions, as to what we would do now as to follow the cardinal. as soon as i let out, i'll let you know. >> that's timothy dolan of new york, one of many potential successors. one of whom is expected to be chosen by easter.
10:23 pm
we have word tonight from news week, and also john allen, senior vatican respondent. this is an unprecedented move in modern history. did anyone see this coming? >> no, i don't think anyone saw this coming. this really is a shocking monday morning news here in rome. the pope had an opportunity yesterday when he addressed his public in st. peter's square, but he chose monday morning to make this announcement. it's an exciting moment in rome when you have a transition to a pope without the sorrow of the funeral and death. the mood is quite spectacular here today. >> john, what do you think is the real reason he's stepping down? >> well, anderson, i think it's probably one of those cases where what you see is basically what you get. benedict has said he's not suffering from any specific illness or health crisis, but he simply feels given his mounting age, we're talking about a man who will be 86 in april, that he
10:24 pm
simply no longer has the force to meet the challenge of facing the church. at least in this regard, i think probably we ought to take him at his ward. >> john, you have covered the vatican for a long time. in terms of who may replace him, there is no way to know for sure, but what are your thoughts? >> my thoughts are the trash heaps of history are littered with the carcasses of so-called experts who are trying to predict the next pope. that's a hazardous position. but i can tell you the names that come up in dinner conversation. cardinal milan, canadian cardinal who runs the vatican's congregation for bishops. the cardinal from argentina who is with the chief of staff under john paul ii, a very good manager. this is all sound and fury signifying nothing until those 117 cardinals who are under 80
10:25 pm
and have the right to vote for the next pope get here to rome, roll up their sleeves, and get to work. >> is that done in the same ways we've seen in years past after the pope has died, the white smoke, the black smoke, all of that? >> it will be very shortly from now that they'll get the process ready. they'll have to put in a fake floor like they did last time to put in jamming devices that will prohibit anyone from eavesdropping electronically what is going on in the sistine chapel. also, they'll install a stove and prepare the chemical cartridges that will turn the black smoke into white smoke when they elect the pope. is he referred to as the former pope? where will he live, what will he do? >> he's got another month on the job, so we're presuming he's going to carry out his regular calendar. this week, of course, features ash wednesday, the beginning of lent for catholics. we presume he'll do his regular
10:26 pm
sunday address. once february 28th, 8:00 rome time rolls around, he is going to relocate to the summer papal residence briefly, and he's eventually going to move into a monastery on vatican grounds. all signals are, he expects to keep a low profile. he's not going to be involved in the selection of the new pope. once there is a new hope, he's going to make it clear to the world there's a new man in charge and he's going to try the best he can to step off the stage. >> john, what do you think his legacy is going to be? >> well, look, i think he's probably going to be remembered over the course of time as a magnificent teaching pope. his ambition was to sort of lead a global graduate seminar about the relationship between faith and reason and the role of religion in a post modern sectarian world.
10:27 pm
even many of his fiercest critics would express admiration for his intellectual depth. as a ceo, as a business manager, the verdict is much more mixed. many critics would say he never got his hands successfully around the sexual abuse scandal. there was a vatican scandal that included the arrest of his own butler. there was a kind of chronic inability to get the trains to run on time. >> barbara, what do you think? >> obviously, john is much better to speak about the ideology than i am, but i think he also will be remembered by the scandals. even going to the american nuns and clamping down on them. there are a lot of people who may not be unhappy to see a change in the vatican. the vatican butler scandal, the sex scandal, protesters in st. peter's square. it seems like that has really marked the last several years, i

welcome back. this has been a brutal weekend of storms. imagine seeing that on the road as you're driving down. it was at least one of 15 tornados that swept through southern mississippi and alabama yesterday. this one touched down in hattiesburg, mississippi.
10:33 pm
close to 200 mobile homes were damaged or completely destroyed. a dozen people were injured. thousands are still without power. david mattingly has the latest. >> reporter: joan stevens and her husband ray survived the tornado that blackened the skies over hattiesburg. the funnel was one of several tornados to batter this part of mississippi. the stevens house is in pieces, they made it out without a scratch. >> the two of you were -- >> right here. and aggi was right here. >> i got her under me and i was laying on her. >> and we were just literally all on the floor and just covered up on each other. >> it could have been so much worse for so many. # 00 houses and 100 apartments were damaged or destroyed.
10:34 pm
in the immediate aftermath there were no deaths, only two were seriously injured. the stevens credit warning sirens installed two years ago. >> we had been watching television since we got home from church. we were ready as ready could be. >> they had a matter of minutes from the time they first heard the alarm to when the storm hit. afterward when they came out and saw all of this damage, they realized that warning was just enough for people to take cover. because when they started checking on their neighbors, no one on this street in spite of all this damage was hurt. the national weather service says parts of hattiesburg had 30 minutes warning before the tornado touched down. the timing of the storm was fortunate. on a sunday afternoon the local high school was almost empty when it hit. and the university of southern mississippi, one historic building badly damaged, had fewer than usual students on campus because of a mardi gras holiday. there were countless close
10:35 pm
calls, hattiesburg's mayor was one of them. >> i was running for my life. >> he managed to get inside his house just in time. the 100-year-old home and the neighborhood took a beating. >> reporter: looking at all the damage, is there one thing that really hurts today in. >> here? >> here, in your house? >> no, because we can replace all this. i mean, nothing hurts. not here. i relish the fact that no one in hattiesburg was killed. no fatalities. the rest of this can be replaced. >> amazing. there's a lot more happening tonight. isha is here. >> anderson, a new blizzard is hitting the u.s. up to 15 inches of snow fell across parts of seven upper midwest states. minnesota and the dakotas are taking the biggest punch. meanwhile, residents in the northeast continue to dig out from this weekend's massive blizzard. up to 40 inches of snow fell in

for the first time, the navy s.e.a.l. who says he killed osama bin laden is going public in an exclusive interview with "esquire" magazine. it's the march headline with the title, the man who killed osama bin laden is screwed. the article makes the case that the navy s.e.a.l. who served for 16 years is leaving the navy without any security, job prospects or insurance for his family. esquire contributor phil braunstein spent more than a year getting to know him. his name remains a secret for his own safety and his families.

and no protection, which is really one of the big issues because it's entirely possible his name could come out. the man who wrote a book, within days his picture was on a jihadi website. all they told the shooter is we have a witness protection program we could institute. it's not there yet, but if you want to drive a beer truck in milwaukee, we can arrange that. you have to cut all your ties with the rest of your family and basically disappear yourself. >> in terms of what he told you about the raid, what surprised you the most? >> i think that he -- i think that the fact that it happened so fast but he had certain images in his mind. you know, particularly the shooting of bin laden. there was one moment when he said, you know, i had to raise my gun because i really didn't -- he was really tall. >> surprised at how tall he was. >> surprised at how tall it was. that was sort of my most enlightening moment for me in the sense that it was really a human moment.
10:44 pm
he also recognized in that instant, i would try to talk to this guy and realize that, okay, this guy was one foot away from this icon. this cultural icon that we have learned, whose face we have known since 9/11. and suddenly, here is this really regular guy. he's a s.e.a.l., and they're extraordinary, but he's a human being. what struck me about his narrative of the mission is not so much all of the detail, some of which -- much of which we have heard before, but his human reaction. >> and his reaction upon shooting bin laden and sort of registering what he had done, sort of the phrase he said to himself. >> well, he said, you know, i just shot osama bin laden. i don't know whether i have just done the best thing in my life, meaning he paid tribute to the people of new york and the people of the united states, done his job, or the worst thing in my life, which is to put a target on his back. >> and he is concerned about that. he has now taught his family how to protect themselves in the event somebody comes for him.
10:45 pm
>> he and his wife describe this in an astonishing way because he's taught her, put the kids in the tub, because there's a retaining wall there. then sit next door in the bedroom, sit on the bed, brace your arm with a gun against the wall so it doesn't kick, and then shoot through the door. they can't -- they didn't have their military ids anymore. if she feels there's a problem or they feel there's a problem, they can't take their family to the command and get in the gate. >> the guy you talked to, who you profile, it must have been difficult for him to even talk to you. >> i would say at first it was impossible. as impossible as you have discovered in many cases. what happened is we got to know each other over time. this is a year and a quarter. in person meetings, phone calls, a lot of communication. i know his wife. his family, members of his family, his friends. and so trust builds slowly. and the point of this, he had the go/no go button in his hand until the very end.
10:46 pm
he could have said, i don't want to do this. i think he came to believe if he could tell the story, that people would understand that these guys aren't supernatural. they're fabulous, but they're human, and if they're human, like any human being, they need some support, and they need some

>> a fascinating article. >> thanks for having me on. >> we asked the navy for a response to the article. they said in a quote, we take seriously the safety and security of our people, as well as the responsibility to assist sailors making the transition to civilian life. without more information about the particular case, it would be difficult to determine the degree to which the transition program succeeded. in arlington, texas, thousands gathered today at cowboy stadium to remember former navy s.e.a.l. chris kyle. he was shot to death on february 2nd. another veteran is charged in the double murder. kyle is considered one of the deadliest snipers in u.s. military history. in his book, he said he killed at least 160 enemy combatants. he became an advocate for veterans struggling with ptsd. today his wife remembered him as a warrior through and through. she also said this. >> there isn't enough time to tell you everything you mean to me and everything you taught me.
10:49 pm
i know you had no idea you were teaching me, but there is something only god and i have known for a long time. god worked through you to make me into the woman i am supposed to be. >> chris kyle was just 38 years old. he leaves also behind two children. his funeral will be tomorrow. just ahead, more than 4,200 people are stranded on a cruise ship off the yucatan peninsula. also, someone decided it was a good idea to bring in giant bird of prey into an arena. the bar harbor bake is really worth trying.
